Transforming Youth Outdoors

We believe in the transformative power of the outdoors. Connecting to the natural world allows us to experience something bigger than ourselves, both internally and externally. We’ve all been transformed by a place, an experience or journey at some point in our lives.

But we have a crisis on our hands. There is a generation of youth at risk of not experiencing this transformation because they’re stuck indoors. We know that every child has a different story, but no matter what the story, we know that all kids can be transformed by connecting with real people and sharing profound experiences that happen outdoors.

As a group of people, the TYO community is passionate about changing the reality for these youth who are at-risk of not getting outdoors. But it’s hard to start or grow an organization that delivers truly impactful programming. And until now, there hasn’t been a place for proven information, tools and support.
